After my Spanish class every Saturday in Casco Viejo I have started making a habit of renting a bike to ride around Cinta Costera after.

Cinta Costera is Panama City’s park system located on the waterfront that was constructed within the past couple of years and is still expanding. There’s lots of greenery, free workout equipment, tennis and basketball courts, bike and running paths, and more. It’s a really beautiful place to take in the city and water views.

There’s a fairly new place that opened called Urban Bikes located near the entrance of Casco Viejo where you can rent bikes, scooters, and rollerblades. It’s currently the only place you can rent a bike on Cinta Costera. I rent the mountain bike for $4 and then it’s mine to enjoy for the next hour.

I decided to make a video montage of my last bike ride so check it out above and let me know what you think!


I'm Joey, a guy from Louisville, Kentucky that packed up and studied abroad in Panamá at the age of 20 and haven't moved back since. What started as a semester trip to Panamá has turned into 7+ years of living in Latin America and becoming a full-time travel blogger.

  1. Hey!… I rent and ride bike on saturdays too (sometimes on sundays). Maybe one day we can meet each other. 😉
